Taxon:

Human

Gene:

PEG3 (PW1), ZIM2

Chromosome:

19

Location:

19q13.43 62.03 Mb

Description:

PEG3 (PW1) and ZIM2 (PEG3-beta isoform) are paternally expressed in a wide variety of fetal and adult tissues (adrenal gland, brain, heart, kidney, lung, placenta, liver, skeletal muscle, and gut) (Murphy SK et al, 2001; van den Veyver IB et al, 2001).
Note that mouse Zim2 is maternally expressed due to insertion of Zim1 between Peg3 and Zim2.
However, Morcos L et al, (2011) found no evidence of allelic expression bias in lymphoblast cell lines.
